Unformatted text preview: 2. What is the primary pigment involved in converting light energy into sugar? 3. What reagent will you use to test the leaf for the presence of starch? Measurement of Photosynthesis by monitoring the Hill Reaction: 1. What critical step in photosynthesis do photochemical reactions perform? 2. What are the 3 products that result? a. b. c. 3. We shall use the Hill Reaction to monitor the rate of photosynthesis. What will be measuring? 4. What indicator will we use to help us visualize and measure the rate of photosynthesis? 5. How will we know if photosynthesis is taking place? ( Describe) 6. You will construct an absorption spectrum using chloroplasts. What will the spectrum tell you? 7. You will construct an action spectrum for the Hill Reaction. What will the spectrum tell you?...
